Default More Affordable OCZ Z-Drive m84 Fails to Impress?

To say our results with the OCZ Z-Drive were a mixed bag would be an understatement. Early on in our testing, we literally got the notion that we needed to "look" for ways to demonstrate the product's strength. Too many times under synthetic benchmark testing, the Z-Drive fell flat, but there were also test conditions that showed big gains for the product, as was seen in our ATTO larger file transfer tests and CrystalDiskMark tests. One thing is for certain, small file random operations are not a strength for the product, but clearly large file transactions, especially write transaction are its strength. These results had us digging deeper with respect to demonstrating real-world test conditions for the Z-Drive where it would excel and also where it wouldn't. As we garnered from our custom large file transfer tests, the Z-Drive was handily up to the task. And as we showed you in our Left 4 Dead game level load tests, the Z-Drive shows mostly competitive performance on par with only a single standard SATA SSD.
